Our Family Workers and Mentor also work with the children in their school environment as the need arises. This is evidence of the effective and valued relationship we have established with the schools in our community.

We also take families to other local programs in the community such as Active Families, Mindfulness and Building Awesome Whanau, the latter of which we co-facilitate.
